Great photos Johnno - amazing mountains. Googled Corsica and found GR20 is a "challenging" mountain trail. Hope your knees and ankles are in good order! Looks like Corsica would be worth a visit - but not for the trout fishing!

Woww Johnno, looks amazing. Im shocked though! A holiday that doesn't involve flyfishing? Id find the lack of fishing pure torture


Bucking trends in fly fishing since 1970!

Long time no post. I'm pleased to see there is still a bit of life in the forum.

Alas, my opening is still on hold. A broken fibula and tibia while mountain biking 8 weeks ago has kept me out of action.

So my first full season in the South won't be a full season. But once I am out of the moonboot in a month or so I hope to hit the Canterbury high country lakes. Rivers may have to wait until later in the season.

Welcome back "upstream" - we need more active members! Couldn't tell what your photo was about - until I enlarged it. Some impressive (and expensive) metal implants there! Hope the healing goes as expected and you get out fishing soon.
